The necessary ingredients for this perfect granola are:

  • Gluten-Free Oats: A fantastic source of fibre, helping you stay full longer and promoting digestive health. Of course, you can use any type of oats you’d like but I make all of my granolas with certified gluten free for the mister!
  • Dried Coconut: Adds a tropical flavour and provides healthy fats; I love the slight crunch and crispness that comes from coconut as well.
  • Salted Pistachios & Raw Pecans: Packed with protein, healthy fats, and antioxidants. Pistachios add a unique flavour, while pecans bring a delightful crunch.
  • Pumpkin & Sunflower Seeds: These seeds are nutritional powerhouses, offering additional protein, fibre, and essential minerals.

  • Dried Blueberries: Rich in antioxidants, adding a sweet and chewy texture.
  • Pistachio Butter: Provides a luxurious depth of flavour and creaminess.
  • Olive Oil & Maple Syrup: A heart-healthy oil and natural sweetener that binds the granola together, adding moisture and a hint of sweetness.
  • Vanilla: Complements the sweetness and rounds out the flavours.

Essentials to Make the Best Granola

Achieving that perfect batch of granola involves a few key steps: evenly mixing your dry and wet ingredients, baking at the right temperature, and allowing the granola to cool completely for that irresistible crunch. One thing I always suggest is DO NOT TOUCH until everything has cooled off. this will ensure that you get those clumpy morsels of joy every time. I also love my pampered chef ceramic baking sheet. Sourcing yourself the ideal baking sheet is key to ensuring a nice and even bake every time. Convection ovens also help with this.

Why Granola Is a Perfect Breakfast

Granola isn’t just delicious; it’s also incredibly nourishing. It’s a fantastic way to kickstart your day with energy, thanks to its combination of healthy fats, proteins, and carbs. The best part of having granola for breakfast is it is easy on the go, or during those busy mornings because all you need to do is add your accompanying ingredients (or eat it dry by the handful if you’d really like!) 

What to Pair This Pistachio Pecan Blueberry Granola With

This granola, along with all granola is incredibly versatile. You can enjoy your gluten free granola with your favourite yogurt, sprinkle it over a smoothie bowl, or simply grab a handful as a snack. It’s also delightful with a splash of milk. I love that I can just toss it in a bowl at any point and add to it whatever I have on hand, a banana with a scoop of yogurt or anything available at the moment. This granola in particular is so enjoyable all on its own.
